レタス畑が青々と広がる野辺山高原で、紅一点、トマト作りに精を出す高見澤さん。標高1350メートルで育った「雲の上のトマト」は、口に含んだ途端、力強い酸味と異次元の甘みが口いっぱいに広がります。「変わり者」と指さされても高見澤さんが笑顔で畑に向き合う秘密を探ります。

TAKAMIZAWA Kenichi
Farmer and creator
Kenichi has devoted his life to growing tomatoes in Nobeyama heights, where most farmers have no doubts about choosing to pursue large scale lettuce cultivation. At an altitude of 1,350 meters above sea level, "Kumono Ueno Tomatoes (Tomatoes Above the Clouds)" taste vividly sour and super sweet. Some say he's eccentric, but let us listen to his story about why he always smiles when facing his field.
